When it comes to your child’s dental health, flossing is just as essential to their routine as brushing. Flossing is only effective when the proper technique is used, so check out this video to learn how to floss your child’s teeth correctly.
You should have your child sit down, so you can stand over them and gain access to all of their teeth. Obtain a long piece of floss, wrapping it around your middle fingers and using your pointer fingers for control. Gently slide the floss between the teeth, taking care to floss all tooth surfaces.
